It is standard Debian procedure to try and separate out
architecture-independent parts of a package so that we can save space
in the archive.  So gnucash-common has the bits that are the same on
every architecture (and thus don't need to be duplicated).

gnucash-common is 2.8 MB right now, thus saving something like 40MB by
not duplicating it for each architecture.
